This trail is a rocky sustained climb to the top of Bergen. Of the 2 ways to the top, this one is slightly less steep and has fewer technical features compared to Too Long. Most features are large rocks and small rock gardens.

The trail has great flow towards the bottom. It's loose over hard pack. Good shade for most of the trail.
